Schools and sporting groups in the north-east have been among those to benefit from the latest round of lottery funding.
Primary schools, sports groups and scouts have been given a boost of more than £63,000 from the National Lottery’s Awards for All scheme.
In Aberdeen, Tullos Primary School, Music4U and NETCO were each given £10,000.
The latter will use their money to help construct a mountain bike trail centre, while Music4U plan to expand their “artistic opportunities”.
A further £2,080 was given to the UK Dodgeball Assocation to establish a competition in the city.
Youngsters at Tullos – along with those at King Edward School and Ordiquhill School, both near Banff – will soon be able to enjoy break and lunchtime even more as their share of the cash will be used to improve the playgrounds.
There was also £6,720 for the Longside Tennis Group which will be used to replace its pavilion roof, while the Victoria Hall Trust in Ellon has been given £4,320 which will allow it to operate for a year.
The Inverurie Scout Group was given £3,179, which will be used to buy a new tent.
An Awards for All spokeswoman said: “These awards highlight the wide range of projects that can be funded through Awards for All.
“From providing much needed services for people with brain injuries in the Scottish Borders through to making sure a community cinema in Argyll and Bute is fully equipped for all audiences, today’s funding shows how National Lottery money is changing lives across Scotland’s communities.”
